August/September Book Reviews

Here is what you can look forward to in August/September.

Undreamed by Paul Western-Pittard

Brief synopsis straight from Amazon:

Undreamed is a dark psychological thriller that tells the tale of Alice, a woman trapped between reality and a dream.

Alice is trapped in a nightmare. She leads two lives, both real to her, both flawless in their logic and texture, both filled with people that she loves and hates. One of these is a dream. She has no way of knowing which. A borderline junkie-heiress in Manhattan, or a recovering psych patient in Sydney, when Alice sleeps in one life, she wakes into the other.

Other than her own memory of them, her worlds are separate and seamless. In both her lives she tries to find clues to discover the root of her sickness, but nothing crosses over. She may as well be two completely different people. Caught in this impossible status quo, never able to bring herself to believe that the life she’s leading is true, Alice is trapped. Not believing either, she believes nothing. Then one day, her lives are fractured when something does cross over. First in Sydney then Manhattan, Alice meets a girl dressed in green. She knows this girl for what she is: the key to her escape. But as she unravels the girl’s secret, the realities of not one but both lives are challenged.

The question becomes: who is it that she’s really waking?


I Plagiarized This Book From Myself By Boyd Jamison

Brief synopsis straight from Amazon:

Will Nicholl has little in common with a private investigator working a missing person’s case and a young woman avoiding her abusive ex-boyfriend. That is until he finds a book – the book- that throws his whole world into chaos. The book is blank except for one page; a page that Will wrote and told no one about.

As he delves deeper into the genesis of the book he finds he is spectacularly connected to both the young woman and the private investigator.

But the deeper he digs the more dangerous life becomes.
